Terralogic Adopts Stellar Cyber’s Open XDR Security Platform to Deliver Comprehensive View of Customer Security

Stellar Cyber | December 07, 2021

Stellar Cyber, the leading security operations platform for MSSPs and innovator of Open XDR, announced today that a top 250 MSSP and technology integrator Terralogic has adopted the Stellar Cyber Open XDR platform to bring new levels of visibility and security to its customers across India.

“We are always seeking new tools that help us deliver world-class security services for our customers,” said Sandeep Vijayaraghavan, VP of Cybersecurity at Terralogic. “The Stellar Cyber Open XDR platform is the first we’ve seen that unifies and correlates data from our various security tools to present a single, comprehensive view of our customers’ security.”

Unlike stand-alone tools that simply capture device logs or protect network endpoints, Stellar Cyber’s Open XDR platform aggregates data inputs from all existing security tools, analyzes it for anomalies, and presents contextual, prioritized security incidents in an intuitive dashboard. For the first time, Stellar Cyber’s platform gives MSSP security professionals a single console to view customers’ entire security profiles and to take quick action when threats are detected.

“We aim to be the leading MSSP in the Indian subcontinent, and for years we have offered a range of cybersecurity services to our customers,” said Renil Komitla, CEO of Terralogic. “Stellar Cyber’s platform gives us a new ability to rise above the competition.”

“When an MSSP has dozens or hundreds of customers, it’s impossible to keep up with cyberattacks in a timely manner using siloed security tools,” said Brian Stoner, VP of the MSSP business unit at Stellar Cyber. “Our automated and intuitive platform helps MSSPs like Terralogic see the big picture and get a true grasp of what’s going on in a network and how to remediate issues.”

Threat intelligence may be one of the most over-hyped capabilities within information security because depending on whom you ask you are always going to get a different answer. Every security vendor markets and espouses the virtues of their approach to actionable intelligence, but what is most important is security and risk leaders figuring out a way to differentiate and dedicate their limited resources to the most beneficial intelligence.

Cybersecurity Startup BitTrap Develops Groundbreaking Detection Technology to Address Surge in Cyberattacks

BitTrap | October 05, 2021

Startup company BitTrap has announced a blockchain-based cybersecurity solution that leverages attackers' motivations to provide singular detection capabilities. This approach differs from cybersecurity paradigms that focus on trying to keep attackers from breaking in. Instead, it assumes some have already made their way inside a network, undetected, and is designed to identify them and reduce hacker dwell time in the compromised system. The system works by deploying a vast network of wallets in every endpoint or cloud instance. Each wallet contains a risk-adjusted bounty of cryptocurrency assets calibrated, based on research from the BitTrap Attacker Behavioral Labs, to ensure it will capture an attacker's attention. Collecting the bounty triggers an incident-response operation that alerts the organization of the breach, effectively causing the hacker to reveal their presence. The vulnerability can be quickly assessed and patched while avoiding ransomware and data exfiltration altogether. BitTrap began operations in 2020 after cyberattacks multiplied during the global pandemic. The company's founders, who combine decades of industry experience in cybersecurity and expertise in attacker behavior, developed the groundbreaking technology to help companies actually benefit from cyberattacks. "It is very important to capitalize on security incidents, using each opportunity to learn and prioritize efforts," said BitTrap CTO Ariel Futoransky. "We need to understand our adversaries' main motivation and use it to overcome our challenges and reduce the impact of attacks. With our unique approach, we can tackle both issues at the same time. We go a long way beyond intrusion detection or deception." The company is particularly proud of the new solution. Through the company's Attacker Behavioral Labs, Altszul said, "We intend to keep investing and developing the most sophisticated capacity in the industry to understand attacker behavior. After our initial success, we are getting ready to raise a new round of financing to fuel our expansion in the market. BitTrap CEO Jonatan Altszul About BitTrap BitTrap is a cybersecurity solution company with a groundbreaking crypto approach, changing how companies face and resolve attacks while saving money along the way. BitTrap triggers immediate alarms using risk-adjusted economic incentives to reveal vulnerabilities without compromising performance. We go far beyond deception technology.
